Status

In planning

Stephenson Halliday has worked closely with architects Mason Gillibrand in preparing a masterplan and detailed landscape concept proposals for the extension of the hotel and leisure facilities at Low Wood Bay Windermere.

Set within the Lake District National Park, the key focus was to sensitively assimilate the proposals into the surrounding character of the area. The proposals entailed the design of the external areas surrounding the new buildings and access road including the bedroom accommodation, atrium and multi-use sport pitch as well as the re-design of other existing areas such as the hotel frontage and new outdoor spa.

The project was part of a Planning Performance Agreement (PPA) with the National Park Authority due to its scale and complexity and Stephenson Halliday worked as part of a multi-disciplinary team with architects, arboriculturalists, cultural heritage and transport consultants to produce the final proposals submitted as part of the planning application.
